Default Any earbuds fit me?

hey im looking to get a new earbuds. Are there any good, popular ear buds out there that fit what i want?
1. i like the jack thingy to be straight, not L shaped.
2. color-black
3. decent sound. i want it to be better than the earbuds that came with my Insigna.
4. Under 50$
5. comfortable to use for a few hours. i watch movies and listen music for a few hours straight sometimes. some earbuds i have had before hurts my ear after using it for 30 minutes.

Have you looked on this thread? There are some interesting earbuds in there; most (if not all) of them under your price range.

Earbuds are the kind that sit in your ear. They come with most DAPs. In-ear or IEM or Canal phones all make a tight seal inside the ear to produce accurate sound. IEM/Canal phones isolate better and usually sound better than buds. Some people can have trouble getting a good seal with IEM/Canal phones, with the Marshmallow probably being the hardest due to the tips that come with them. If you can get a good seal then the mallows are pretty decent, but don't expect miracles.

Hope I am not too late but get the new JVC FX66 (Marshmellow V2...) they sound much better and I can wear them for hours on end. $35 at Circuit City and they usually have sales on the stuff too. Got mine for 15% off.

Here is a discussion thread:

New ones are meant to be better.

Sure they are too. Not going to make worse ones.

Apparently better than CX300, EP-630 etc

Will someone else please buy the EP630 so I am not alone with these awesome canal phones? And because I want to see a comparison with the CX300.
